The upper basin of the Tigris River in Iraq includes the Fishkhaboor, Big (Greater) Zab, Little (Lesser or Lower) Zab and the upper Diyala rivers. Fishkhoboor and Big Zab rivers originate from the mountainous region of Turkey; and Little Zab and Upper Diyala rivers originate from Iran. As a transboundary river, it is threatened by upstream developments. While in Iraq, the river is threatened by local pollution and degradation.
